From 2006-2011, former soap opera star Adriana Ferreyr was the “on-again, off-again” girlfriend of hedge fund manager George Soros. As the story goes, toward the end of their relationship, Soros promised Ferreyr her “dream” apartment on East 85th Street, broke up with her a day after the place went into contract, texted her “what are you up to?”1 one night a few weeks later, and then, after going over to her place to “reconcile,” whispered in her ear that he’d given her apartment away to another woman (who would later become his wife). Since then, Ferreyr has demonstrated time and time again that she’s packing a serious pair, but no more so than today. Before we get into that, though, a brief recap of Ferrey’rs balls in action:

Placing the trades in an account under his own name was obviously out. Same went for anyone with whom he shared a last name, like his mom or dad. And that’s when the lightbulb went off: Read more »

In 2006, George Soros was eating lunch in the Hamptons when he feasted his eyes on something he thought looked even tastier than his soft-shell crab sandwich: 23 year-old Brazilian soap star Adriana Ferreyr. A “smitten” Soros asked for her phone number and the two dated for the next five years, with Soros promising to buy her her “dream home” at 30 East 85th Street, a convenient two blocks from his own pad. A few days after a contract was signed Soros “heartlessly dumped.” Ferreyr was pretty pissed about the situation but, as these things go, the duo “briefly reconciled for a romantic night together” during which Jorge supposedly had the Soroses to “whisper in her ear” that he’d given the keys to her dream house to another one of his gal-pals. That’s when this allegedly happened: Read more »
